“Because the Soleri Exhibition accedes to a social relevance seldom attained by most museum exhibitions, the Corcoran Gallery of Art is especially indebted to the Prudential Insurance Company of America for acting as co-sponsor, and to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development for aid in the publication of the catalog. Prudentials’s contribution goes beyond the financial: it shows American business interest can exert collaborative pioneering effects on the social reals. And HUD’s participation through the urban renewal demonstration program represents a new dimension of that department’s concern for the achievement of quality in our developing environment. While neither Prudentail, nor HUD necessarily endorse any of Soleri’s particular solutions, both feel that the issue he raises must be heard and discussed at an early date if ever new cities are to be created.”
